Notes
– This list is sorted by default by total sales in yen, minimum ¥100m.
– This is primarily BD boxes from 2009 onward, with a few exceptions. BD sales data was not disclosed before late 2009, therefore anything before then cannot be counted unless it made the 2009 Yearly BD Rankings.
– Only re-releases are included, so Fate/Zero would not be listed here.
– This list is probably not complete; I had not been tracking this in detail before so I compiled it somewhat quickly.
– Multi-volume releases are tallied together for a total.
– There are multiple ways a list like this could be done but total sales in yen is what I’ve traditionally done. Straight unit sales would be another way, though you’d probably want to average sales for multi-volume series rather than sum them in that case.

  1. something something says:

    I’ve updated the list to reflect prices without sales tax, as described at http://www.someanithing.com/?p=1210

    I also fixed a couple small mistakes for some of the multi-part sets. NO major changes there though.

    The move to take out sales tax put three sets slightly under ¥100m, and I didn’t want to remove them entirely because of that, so I made note in a separate table.

  2. primadog says:

    Air, Kanon, and Clannad BD boxsets announced for late this year. Along with the recent Haruhi and K-on! boxsets, that pretty much covered all the classic KyoAni franchises within the span of a year. That seems uncommon.

    Is there a reason for so many re-releases in such a short time span? Coincidence? A decision by the distributors involved?

    • something something says:

      And FMP last October. Coincidence tho, really.

      Haruhi (Kadokawa) is being released to cross-promote with the new pachinko game.
      K-ON! (Pony Canyon) was for the 5th anniversary of the TV series.
      FMP! (Kadokawa) was for the 15th anniversary of the novels, I guess?
      KeyAni (Pony Canyon) just seems like making some quick money (like most boxsets), unless there’s some Key anniversary or whatever. AIR has been released on BD twice before (in the early days of BD tho), and Clannad/AS and Kanon had vastly more expensive BD boxes in the past… I paid more than triple the new MSRP for all of them.

  3. Pemu says:

    Did you added Cardcaptor sakura BDboxs after the 2012 one ? Thanks:D

  4. zoro says:

    natsume yuujinchou is ¥399,136,000
    is that good?

  5. Gin-san says:

    natsume yuujinchou first bd box released date ?

  6. Whocares says:

    What does this mean?

    • something something says:

      It’s a list of how much money these blu-ray box sets made, if you multiply the units sold by the MSRP.

      • Whocares says:

        But I remember Evangelion was the top selling franchises of all-time. I saw it on a Japanese website, don’t remember the which site tho.

        • Whocares says:

          the site*

        • something something says:

          Yes, but this list only covers blu-ray (BD) boxes, and only re-releases. I cover original release sales in other lists (though only shows from 2000-present when modern reporting via Oricon began). The Evangelion entry mentioned here is the BD box released in 2015.

  7. AholePony says:

    It’s crazy that it looks like the Shingeki no Kyojin box won’t make this list, unless it gets a boost after the new season ends or something. I don’t think anyone would have believed that a few years ago. I was thinking it would be cool to have year of release on this page, some boxes have come out so long after their seasons it would be interesting to see if the correlation to sales there. Might be something for me to drum up in excel this weekend :)

    • something something says:

      The s1 box? Oh yeah that sold terribly, it has basically no chance of getting on this list.

      I may be able to add release year here.
